“When all else Fails , Try Jesus ” !
Stick with me here … why would we wait for all to fail before trying Jesus ? Matthew 5 begins Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount. It ends in Matthew 7. It is called the Sermon on the amount because it was when Jesus was preaching/teaching for several days at the hillside of Capernaum. It has some amazing nuggets of wisdom in these two chapters .
Matthew 6:33 Jesus says ” Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well”
He then ends the Sermon on the Mount with this , Matthew 7: 24-27
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose , and the winds blew and beat against that house , yet it did not fall , because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose , and the winds blew against that house, and it fell with a great crash . ”
So , I ask , when storms of life come , are you going to be like the wise man or the foolish man ? The wise man didn’t wait to seek Jesus first . The wise man sought Jesus before the storms came … Jesus was his first choice . The wise man didn’t wait for all else to fail ! Because guess what , if we don’t trust Jesus first , everything WILL FAIL! We will end up like the foolish man !
Now, don’t get me wrong , I’m not saying that bad things are not going to happen. What I am saying is that when we are completely surrendered to Jesus , Everything will turn out according to His will ! We will have Joy unspeakable, Peace that surpasses all understanding, and all of our Needs will be met regardless of any storm you may face . I can personally account for this , He has proven it to me time and time again !
The next time you hear ” when all else fails , try Jesus ” …. then say , Stop ” Seek Jesus First , because HE NEVER FAILS”!!
